Priyanka Chopra Jonas is one star who takes her global domination seriously. She’s ready to share four cool new ventures with the world, and here’s what these are.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas has co-produced Evil Eye with Jason Blum. The horror movie is set to release on October 13 on Amazon Prime Video. The OTT platform describes it as ‘a seemingly perfect romance turns into a nightmare when a mother becomes convinced her daughter’s new boyfriend has a dark connection to her own past’. Directed by Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani, it’s touted as the perfect cross-over between Indian and western filmmaking, and the trailer has already gathered a positive response.
Unfinished: A Memoir
Two years ago, the actor had announced a memoir in the making. And last month she took to social media to share that she’s finally finished writing it. Unfinished: A Memoir is being published by Penguin Random House, and Chopra-Jonas commented that “every word in my memoir comes from a place of introspection and reflection into my life”. As of yesterday, the book is available for pre-order.
A World of Calm
The star turns narrator with the HBO Max series A World of Calm. However, this isn’t the typical entertainment series; true to its name, it helps the audience calm down. Priyanka Chopra Jonas has joined Keanu Reeves, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, Lucy Liu, Idris Elba, Zoë Kravitz, Oscar Issac, Mahershala Ali, and Cillian Murphy in this ten-part series. The 30-minute episodes will have unscripted episodes narrated by the stars. It is in collaboration with the apps Calm and Nutopia and aims at helping the user relax and destress as they see the calming visuals and hear the audio along with it.
First Time Directors program
This week she also joined hands with ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group for their First Time Directors program for BIPOC and women filmmakers. BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour, and the program will support 50 films made by women who fall under any of these sections. Along with Priyanka Chopra Jonas, the other producers include the likes of Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, Idris Elba, Salma Hayek, John Leguizamo, and Eva Longoria. These movies will help promote not only female empowerment but also the non-white races.
